Summary

The protruding start on Mary Nabegeyo's basket is unusual for a coiled work and is reminiscent of the older classic twined baskets. It is made with horizontal bands of undyed and dyed pandanus in bathi style with a single coiled handle attached in the middle of the bag on opposite sides. The form of the coiled conical basket is linked to the entrenched practice of twining conical baskets, and in recent years changes of structure in this basket have had striking results.
